KHello from SC
I have a gifted collected Pine. The trunk, bark, and taper are pretty nice. I believe it has turface/ sand/ potting soil around its root ball since this spring.
This week end I plan to thin the top to bifurcating branches. Which Leeds me to my questions below…
My questions on how to progress the tree are:
- the lower branches are week so would wiring the top of the tree redirect energy to them?
- when would the best time to wire and would this be an exception
- should I work on the root ball situation first? now or in spring?
I’m still working on the identification although I think it’s a “pinus Virginia” which I believe is a 2 growth Pine.
Any advice is appreciated
